This rich and complex beer pours a deep dark color with a thin off-white head. On the nose, there are notes of caramel, toffee, and dark fruit, with a hint of warming alcohol. On the palate, flavors of sweet plums, caramel, and brown sugar dominate, with a subtle tartness from the Mirabelle plums. The mouthfeel is full-bodied and velvety, with a gentle carbonation that complements the beer's sweetness. The finish is long and warming, with a lingering sweetness and a subtle hint of oak from the plum liqueur barrel aging. At 12% ABV, this is a sipper of a beer that rewards patience and contemplation.
